EXCUSE ME, UH, BUT CREDITS ARE IN STAR WARS, NOT STAR TREK. IN STAR TREK THE USE OF MONEY HAS BECOME OBSOLETE BECAUSE OF THE ABILITY TO REPLICATE MATTER.

They used CREDITS in the casino. Then there was that little faggot Quark in Deep Space Nine. I seem to remember he ran his business in some sort of monetary trade.

Trading things that are difficult to replicate hardly constitutes currency.

I am no star trek aficionado, but wasn't the fact that the TNG movies suggested there was no money in the future piss people off because the show clearly shows they do? I dunno I remember there being a controversy there.

I think the dealio was that on the starship, everything was tied to your service in StarFleet. You could get whatever personal items you wanted, provided you were in good standing, and the items were not unreasonable (No Bentley's in Space!).

When you visited a starport not in Starfleet, or with non-Starfleet personnel (like Quark or Garak) running businesses, there was always an exchange of latinum - either strips or bars - for the service requested. It may not be universal, but it was used as currency, especially when dealing with the Ferengi.

Thus using a form of currency.

In short, humans seem to have ditched money, but other aliens still have it.

It's complicated, I guess.
